“Huge Congratulations to our members Real Pirates Salem for their official Ribbon Cutting with Mayor Kim Driscoll, the Salem Chamber, and many, many local stakeholders and supporters of this impressive new small business. We at Creative Collective have been delighted to support them since they opened and are working on ways to help them continue to find their rhythm and grow in the space they have, and thrive in Downtown Salem!
If you haven’t checked it out yet, we HIGHLY suggest it. There is a REALLY interesting story to learn and they have built out something extremely impressive in the space.

As a side note, we are so happy to see the work we did years ago with the City to create the park that this business abuts and love that it is finally living up to the conversations and plans that came out of the original community engagement sessions.”
